The Daytona Beach International Airport evacuated after the discovery of an unattended bag

An electric toothbrush making noise in an unattended suitcase caused an evacuation Thursday at the Daytona Beach International Airport.

Airport officials said they found an unattended bag on a carousel when picking up luggage around 14:00. Someone claimed to have heard a noise from the bag, which prompted the mine clearance team to respond.

Airport officials said the bag belonged to a person who had missed a connecting flight and was not at the airport to retrieve his luggage.

An investigation revealed that the noise came from an electric toothbrush.

The entire airport was evacuated as a precaution, officials said.

No flights were disturbed during the evacuation.
